# st: repeated factor ANOVA

 From James prince To statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject st: repeated factor ANOVA Date Tue, 2 Oct 2012 07:57:07 -0500

```Hello,

I am unsure how to set-up the following problem using the ANOVA
command. Any help would be appreciated.

I have data on 600 liver patients, 300 assigned to one of two
treatment groups (TREAT).
Each had 4 biopsy (one in each quadrant: UR, UL, LR, LL) and the
concentration on an enzyme (Y) measured. I also have data for sex. I
know that I can used XTMIXED to do this, but I need to use ANOVA

Jim

This is what I did:  I first tried using a repeated ANOVA but got an error:

. anova y treat liver sex subj, repeat(subj)
could not determine between-subject error term; use bse() option

Then,
If I set it up as nested, I get a result, but I am not sure if it is correct.
anova y treat liver sex/ subj|liver/

Number of obs =     696     R-squared     =  0.7757
Root MSE      =  2.7219     Adj R-squared =  0.5508
